PORTSMOUTH, NH – In August of 2021, New Hampshire Tech Manufacturer Cirrus LED went solar. The 186-kilowatt solar project, built by Brentwood-based ReVision Energy, sits on the roof of Cirrus Systems, Inc on West Road in Portsmouth, NH. Cirrus installed the 428-panel array in a concentrated effort to become a more sustainable manufacturer. The solar panels account for 33% of Cirrus’ electrical needs and have offset 334,000 pounds of CO2. This is the equivalent of planting 2,500 trees.
The panels are only the first step towards sustainable manufacturing. The company also encourages purchasing electric vehicles and has begun installing EV chargers that can be used for free by employees to make their commute carbon neutral.
“Implementing a renewable energy strategy today isn’t just about company image or even limited to ecological stewardship. We are in an economic climate of unstable and rising electricity prices. Internationally, fossil fuel energy security is at a low point. As a result, we have seen our grid-bought electricity prices go up 40% within a year.
Solar was a no-brainer for maintaining profitability. Being profitable offers stability to our current employees, allows us to grow, and, in turn, create more jobs.” - David Rycyna, CEO, Cirrus LED
